People asked why I would take an 18 month old to Disney - he would never remember it they said. Well this is why! - NEVER too young to experience the magic.

It isn't about his memories but the experience you all have as a family - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #26 3:11PM
👆This! - KermitFan13  653.7 #307 4:30PM
Well said - spaceranger916  376.5 #601 6:54PM
Ohhhhh! Absolutely adorable! Yes. The reason you bring a 18-month old to Disneyland is because that's how old he is! Are you expected to do nothing with a child until he is 5 simply because 'he won't remember?' That just doesn't make sense to me! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 3:23PM
Exactly! None if my friends ever understood why I would bring my kids from about 9 months on . They might not remember .. But I remember . All that matters is being "in the moment" and enjoying disneyland with your family - eviljules  1404.1 #124 4:27PM
::whispers we started taking Abby at 3 months, and so glad we did! She loves Disneyland.:: - LilMissPixie84  309.5 #861 10:59PM
Can I just tell you how much this picture warms my heart?!? Everyday I think about when I get to take my little boy to Disneyland for the first time and I so look forward to seeing reactions like this! - kritomiester  364.1 #632 3:55PM
Copy it, share it, frame it because this photo really is priceless!! (And I just want to (very lightly) pinch his pink cheeks!! Such a sweetie! - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 4:32PM
Through the eyes of a child 😊 - Missymoo  742.2 #262 11:12PM
Oh his face is priceless!!!! How cute! Keep the magic going! - PixiePirateMaid  345.5 #690 3:06PM
Precious!!!!! - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 3:08PM
I definitely agree! We took our son at about a year old and he loved all the sights and sounds. Disneyland is so colorful, perfect for babies. What an adorable expression! :) - kss4tink  218.0 #1760 3:09PM
adorable! - Sarafina  491.7 #432 3:09PM
He might not remember the exact trip, but he will remember the feelings he had when he was there. Looks like he is hooked for life! - lovetheland7  177.9 #2279 3:09PM
Adorable! - MXPrincess399  753.7 #250 3:10PM
I know how you feel. I'm taking my son next month. He will be about 16 months and everyone wants to know why i would take him since he won't remember. That is such a great expression. - rachelelizabeth  189.5 #2125 3:11PM
I absolutely love his expression! - Armenda  1159.7 #154 3:13PM
So precious! - lohofosho  785.0 #235 3:14PM

Adorable picture. NEVER too young. - Ilovedvc  59.6 #4447 3:24PM
The expression on his face says it all!! - leopardditz2000  872.7 #213 3:26PM
I took my oldest at 19months! Never to young! - chryschris22  67.9 #4224 3:33PM
So true!! Adorable picture! - duckchub  557.8 #364 3:35PM
Agree with you 100%. The joy on the little face is priceless - FairyGrandmother  349.3 #677 3:37PM
So true! We took my nephews at that age. They may not remember it but I will never forget that trip with them! I experienced Disneyland in a whole new way with them! - AKMouse  490.6 #434 3:38PM
I used to be one of those people, then I started taking my now 9 month old son, and I am now experiencing the magic all over again when I see his smile grow into a squeal when he watches the fireworks or sees Screamin' go roaring by our car on the Fun Wheel. He might not remember it, but for those few minutes he is the happiest little boy in the world. - mandigutterrose  156.5 #2618 3:41PM
so much awesome in his expression! - OhanaPhoto  5324.9 #21 3:43PM
What an adorable picture - misschurro  6362.4 #17 3:57PM
Awww, love that face! - ElectricMayhemMom  1435.1 #119 4:24PM
I've heard that comment several times. You are right for taking your child. - TangledsDad  256.4 #1286 5:30PM
Priceless☺☺ - jokers-queen  12.1 #9786 5:32PM
I've heard that comment many times too. When I've encouraged people to go with me & my toddlers, I get "I'll wait until they're 4+; otherwise, it's a waste of money." *shakes head - Diz_Mel  96.0 #3652 5:34PM
I've been told that too. To which I reply, it really isn't about money, since kids under 2 don't pay for airfare, under 3 don't pay for tickets and stay free at a hotel. Soooo... - MsKa-chow  18.9 #7569 5:49PM
Absolutely love his expression...we're taking our 18 month grandson and I wondered how it would be, getting even more excited now - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 5:43PM
The expression on his face is so cute. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 5:45PM
Well plus you will always have the picture for him to see as he gets older. Totally worth it. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 5:46PM
Awwwww, that's when I took my first trip to Disney way back in the day! - Dufus  275.7 #1101 5:54PM
Priceless! - pinkmonkeys  528.7 #393 5:56PM
You need to frame this! So adorable. - DisneyVacationLover  505.0 #422 6:08PM
Exactly! - socaldad85  106.6 #3489 6:09PM
Classic!!! - bonedaddy909  1466.1 #116 6:09PM
Love his expression! - MonLuvsDisney  192.1 #2088 6:10PM
I have been taking my kids since my son was 4 months old. My son is 3 1/2 years old now and my daughter is 1 1/2 years old. Not to mention I'm expecting another daughter in may. We are planning a trip in June. Totally worth the faces. - Disneyprincessmommy  213.1 #1827 6:50PM
I used to get that all the time too!!! Took my son on a holiday at 18 months and he's now 6 and can recall so many details. It's all about creating experiences and memories I say! Age is just a number!!! - ariel1981  287.4 #992 6:54PM
My little gal was about the same age in her first trip and she LOVED it!! I totally agree with you!! - brittandkell  487.5 #436 6:56PM
He will remember always. I feel that way on the inside every time I'm there. - supersparkles  54.1 #4618 7:07PM

I used to feel the same...couldn't remember my first Disneyland trip as a two year old. But when I have kids I will want to see their faces....just like this sweet pic - Islandariel  169.3 #2417 12:35AM
I started taking my daughter on a regular basis at 6 months old and she loved it!! When she first started talking when we got to the parking structure she would always start screaming, "Disney!" - Queenof2princesses  259.6 #1262 12:55AM
Love it! - LisaMouse7531  410.1 #544 2:00AM
This is such a cute picture. My daughter.is 15 months and she loves it. - CM_DumboLuvr  26.8 #6306 2:40AM
Yes!!! We started taking our little one right when she turned one! I love seeing her reaction when we come back every week(we try) we take her so much that sometimes I feel she will never forget! Lol - annjay07  170.5 #2400 4:26AM
Such a precious face! I love seeing the looks on my nieces faces when we walk in for the first time. It's the most amazing feeling! - mcramos925  454.8 #480 7:34AM
So sweet. I have a picture of my son when he was a year old and he has the same look in his eyes. When people say their kids are too young to enjoy Disney, I show them his picture. - mamamouse22  27.8 #6220 8:38AM
